Credit Card Finder® Interview with Antonia Kidman

ANZ have launched a brand new initiative for the month of February called FebuSave to help get Australian women saving!

Australian television personality and journalist Antonia Kidman is one of the official FebuSave coaches, so we thought it would be a good idea to speak with Antonia and find out a little more about her role as an ANZ ‘Be Money Confident’ ambassador

1. What do you find to be the most rewarding part of your role as the ANZ ‘Be Money Confident’ ambassador?

Apart from everything I’m learning it’s wonderful to be able to encourage other Australian women to take up the Febusave challenge and set a savings goal that will hopefully then become a pattern for the rest of the year.

2. What is your personal savings goal, and what do you actively do to reach your savings goal?

I want to learn more about the share market so I set up an Online Investment Account with ANZ. As it is a long-term investment I want to add to it slowly but regularly. I’d like to increase my monthly credit amount with the goal that when my children finish school I’ll be able to give them some money to put towards travel, a car or perhaps a home deposit.

3. Do you ever find it challenging to stay disciplined and on track with your savings?

I do when I see something I like! But having said that I’ve just moved house and thrown out so much stuff I don’t think I’ll ever buy another thing! Saving can be tricky because it seems non-essential.

l. But I have a very strong desire to set myself up and plan for my future. That desire overrides small frivolous temptations so no I’m pretty good.

4. What is your #1 tip for Australian women who are just starting off with their savings?

Just start small. A little bit can go a long way, particularly if it is over a long period of time. The 28 days of February is a good start to get you into the habit of saving. I encourage people to log onto and sign up today. On the site you will have access to savings calculators to determine how much you can save as well as inspirational tips and stories from the FebuSave coaches.
